i love foreign films and don’t watch them nearly as much as i once did…
as much as i’d like to… as much as i should.
i enjoy them because they generally eschew ridiculous happy endings in favor of more realistic endings… or better yet? no ending at all.
my favorite films are ones that leave you believing that the characters are still off living…
and that you might just run into them… somewhere… out there…
and pick the story back up.
i haven’t seen the film referenced below. i believe it was released the year i was born.
This image – and the title of the short from whence it came – resonated with me in the wee hours of the morning.
From the film – The Oldest Profession
Image from the short (titled Anticipation ) by Jean-Luc Godard
